Defense holds down fort as ECC rebounds

first_imgFortunately for El Camino, its offense didn’t have to score early. The defense took care of that. El Camino free safety Devynn Brown intercepted a pass from quarterback Sean Sudol and returned it 81 yards for a touchdown. The score came with 7:41 left in the first quarter. The interception was one of four turnovers El Camino’s defense forced while it dominated Riverside’s offensive line in a 38-14 victory that opened Mission Conference play. Linebacker Kaipo Sarkissian led the defensive effort, finishing with 10 tackles, two for a loss and a sack. “We just hunted down the ball,” Sarkissian said. “We needed to make sure we picked ourselves up after last week and we did a pretty good job (of that).” JC FOOTBALL: The Warriors rout Riverside once run game gets going. By David Saunders STAFF WRITER El Camino’s offense continued to struggle early in Saturday’s game with visiting Riverside. Dating to its previous game at Bakersfield, the unit’s touchdown drought climbed to 51 minutes, 31 seconds. El Camino sacked Riverside quarterbacks Sudol and Coy Glass six times, pressure that resulted in a slew of antsy throws and a 34.6 completion percentage. Sudol was 6-for-16 for 78 yards and Glass was 3-for-10 for 40 yards. Sudol in particular never seemed to find any kind of rhythm. He threw both of Riverside’s interceptions and fumbled the ball five times, losing two. Three came from botched exchanges with center Ryan Henry. The turnovers resulted in four first-half possessions that started in Riverside territory. With so many of its drives starting on a shortened field, El Camino favored the running game more than the pass. Why not? The team used 11 different rushers and gained 285 yards on 42 carries for an average of more than 6.8 yards per touch. “Our plan was to come out and run the ball to open up the pass,” quarterback Boo Jackson said. “We started pounding the ball up the middle and we started getting 10-yard gains, 15-yard gains, 20-yard gains and we never went away from it.” Though Jackson threw touchdown passes of 32 yards to Verran Tucker and 40 yards to Harry Deberry and rushed for another score, he had one of his lightest nights of his El Camino career in terms of workload. Jackson had season lows in completions (9), attempts (16) and yards (140). “Running the ball like that takes a lot off of my shoulders. I don’t need to keep throwing the ball,” Jackson said. While El Camino built a 38-0 lead on the strength of its backfield and defense, the importance of an effective running game was further emphasized in how stagnant Riverside’s offense became without one. Running back Jamaal Scott carried the call 16 times for 23 yards, while Riverside as a team ran the ball 37 times for 97 yards. “Our defensive line was monstrous,” El Camino coach John Featherstone said. “They didn’t have an inch to run the ball all night. Once they cross the line of scrimmage, there were two or three guys tagging (their running backs).” [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img20 March 2015Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden was recently announced as winner of the garden of the year award at the 2015 International Garden Tourism Awards, the South African Botanical Institute (Sanbi) announced on Wednesday.The award was presented by the International Garden Tourism Network (IGTN) in Toronto, Canada.The Garden Tourism Awards are presented to organisations and individuals “who have distinguished themselves in the development and promotion of the garden experience as a tourism attraction,” IGTN said in a statement on Tuesday.In consultation with a global jury network, nine awards were announced by the IGTN, and garden tourism related events from Japan, UK, Thailand, Brussels, British Columbia, Dubai, Netherlands, USA as well as South Africa were honoured.“Scooping the garden of the year award has once more underlined the important role that Kirstenbosch plays in contributing to the country’s tourism figures and, having hit the one million visitors in a year in 2014, this award is a further boost for potential visitors,” Sanbi said on its website.‘Flagship garden’Kirstenbosch is high on the list of “must visit” attractions for both local and international tourists.“We strive to offer visitors a unique experience at Kirstenbosch,” curator Philip le Roux said. “As the flagship garden of Sanbi we are proud to be recognised at these prestigious awards.

Samsung Galaxy Camera: Android Comes To Internet Of Things

first_imgdan rowinski What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Everyone knows the smartphone is killing the point-and-shoot digital camera. Who wants to carry a digital camera as a separate device when your smartphone already takes good-enough pictures and makes them easy to share with your friends? Sure, a good point-and-shoot takes better pictures than a smartphone does. On the other hand, digital cameras can’t use mobile apps, a cellular connection or a smart operating system. Until now.Samsung Galaxy CameraThe Samsung Galaxy Camera is an Android-based digital point-and-shoot that will be available from AT&T on Nov. 16 for $499. The Galaxy Camera has a 16 megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor screen, a 21x optical zoom lens (note, optical zoom, not digital) and a 4.8-inch touchscreen panel. It runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a quad-core processor. Its cellular connection will run over AT&T’s HSPA+ network and can be added to a shared data plan or use a separate individual data plan from the carrier. The device will be Wi-Fi equipped as well.Is there a place in the consumer market for such a device? I do not know about its widespread appeal, but I want one. I have always wanted a digital camera that can take better pictures than my smartphone and automatically upload all those high-quality photos to Flickr, Picasa (Google+) or other social networks without a USB cable and intimate knowledge of iPhoto or Photoshop. And I’d be willing pay good money and carry a separate device to do that. Samsung is not the only company to attach a mobile operating system to a high-quality camera. Nokia released the 808 PureView earlier this year, a smartphone with a 41-megapixel camera with the vaunted Carl Zeiss optics. The difference is that the 808 PureView remains, at its most fundamental level, a smartphone. The Galaxy Camera is essentially a Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone with the phone stripped away and a quality digital camera bolted to the front. Nokia 808 PureViewA Mainstream Step Into The Internet Of ThingsThe Galaxy Camera is a camera first, cell phone… never. This is an intriguing poduct, and not just because it is a camera that can use social apps like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and others from wherever you are. When we think of mobile operating systems like Android or iOS, the first thing that pops into our minds are smartphones and tablets. That makes sense, considering that 99% of devices built on these operating systems are one or the other. But think about what these devices actually are. We call them smartphones, but they are really small, powerful digital computers that happen to be able to make phone calls. The mobile operating systems evolved into phone-centric devices because that is what the consumer market wanted. Yet to think that iOS, Android, Windows Phone or BlackBerry are limited to smartphones and tablets gives them short shrift. They clearly have the potential to run myriad other devices. Related Posts Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement For instance, Android was built in such a way that it could be deployed everywhere. Want an Android-powered thermostat? Somebody can build that. A toaster? A car? Research In Motion wants to put BlackBerry into everything, including automobiles and infrastructure.What we are talking about here is the Internet Of Things, where all kinds of machines and devices can connect to the Internet and can be interfaced through mobile systems. The backbone of the infrastructure of the Internet Of Things will be mobile operating systems such as Android, and the Galaxy Camera is one of the first mainstream devices to show its possibilities.  Tags:#Android#Internet of Things#photography#Samsung Galaxy The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

The Unforgettables: Amitabh Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor talk about cinema, life, sense memory, family

first_imgOne defined the rage and restlessness of the ’70s and reinvented himself in the noughties. The other, a decade old in the film industry, is living up to an enormously rich heritage. Together, they are possibly the finest actors in the Mumbai film industry. Separated by a little over four,One defined the rage and restlessness of the ’70s and reinventedhimself in the noughties. The other, a decade old in the film industry,is living up to an enormously rich heritage. Together, they are possibly the finest actors in the Mumbai film industry. Separated by a littleover four decades of experience, they have much in common in how theyapproach their craft. Amitabh Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor talk to eachother about cinema, life, sense memory and family.Ranbir Kapoor: I will not look into your eyes because I am intimidated. I’m such a fan of the work you do. I have ten thousand memories of you, having been around you while growing up. I remember when I came on the sets of Ajooba (1991); I was very young and not aware of actors or what they do. I didn’t even know my father was an actor. It really scared me when I saw you in that costume-your presence, your magnetism has stayed with me. Another thing I must tell you, Amit uncle, for the past 20 years, you have never forgotten to wish me on my birthday. And when I was in school, in my first semester in New York, I came home and found a message on my answering machine: ‘Hi Ranbir, this is Amitabh Bachchan calling to wish you a very happy birthday.’ That entire semester I showed off that phone call to everyone. It was my trump card. I got a lot of attention from women. But my best memory of you is while I was assisting (Sanjay Leela) Bhansali on Black (2005). Forget film school and acting school, it was when I got to see you live that I received my education. Tell me, what is your take on commercial cinema? I find it hard to digest when people tell me to do a masala film.advertisementAmitabh Bachchan: I don’t think there’s a necessity to have a debate on this. Every film is made to make money, whether it’s a so-called art film or “different cinema”. Everyone invests money and wants returns. It is the audience that decides whether it is a masala film or not and whether they would like to go watch it again. So when you talk of the other kind of cinema, the credit really goes to the audiences, because it means they have changed their tastes and they really want to see better films. Better in the sense that they want to see something credible rather than escapist. It is challenging for newcomers, for new filmmakers. But if you’re saying your kind of cinema isn’t making money, you’re wrong. Some of your films have done huge business. You want to be seen as someone doing something credible, something people can identify with. Audiences like you, irrespective of the kind of films you do. You have a quality; when you perform, you don’t do much. You have great movement within your eyes, and there’s something you do with your body. You’re brilliant, and audiences are very mature, so don’t worry about your films not doing well.Ranbir: You’re pulling my leg now, Amit uncle! When you’re not working, are you constantly in a state of inspiration? You’re always so aware of what happens in the world, about politics, about sports. Are you constantly learning, reading stuff or do you have moments when you are not doing anything, just relaxing.Amitabh: This mobile phone is a horror. The moment you switch it on, you want to go to Twitter or Facebook. You start scrolling and you don’t want to stop. The brain gets exhausted with the information you’re getting. I don’t know if it’s healthy, but it’s difficult to stop.Ranbir: I’ve stayed away from social media. I find that actors are so easily accessible-through social media,at airports.Amitabh: Yes, this is a problem! I have to think before I go to the airport. What did I wear last time?Ranbir: Do you think I am losing out by not being on social media?Amitabh: I think you should do what’s important to you. I started a blog because someone said there are a lot of websites out there in my name. The first day I wrote two lines: ‘Hello, everyone. I’ve started this blog.’ The next day I got a response and I thought this is fantastic. I sent a reply in my next one. The next day I got four replies. Now I’ve written it every day for over 3,000 days non-stop. I do it myself. Twitter and Facebook too.advertisementRanbir: Apart from social media, what else do you do? Are you comfortable being on your own? Do you enjoy travelling?Amitabh: I can’t say I prefer it, if I have company, I enjoy it, but if I don’t, I’m okay by myself. As far as travelling is concerned, I think now I’m more comfortable being at home.Ranbir: But how can you create something new if you’re not travelling and rejuvenating yourself?Amitabh: What’s the guarantee that I could rejuvenate by travelling?Ranbir: But don’t you want to meet new people?Amitabh: I meet them on TV, in the media, through social media; I read opinions, the reactions to them.Ranbir: I remember when you took off acting for some time. Did you take it as failure; the sabbatical?Amitabh: It was a mistake. I don’t think I should have been away from the camera and the studios. Every day on a set is great learning. To sit back and take a sabbatical is wrong. I felt, I’d be able to continue after three years, but in this profession, there’s always someone waiting around the corner; someone better, someone better-looking, more popular will take your place. Every day you are always learning something, meeting new people, working with new artists, working in new surroundings, meeting directors and people you have not worked with. I think I missed out on that.Ranbir: Which was your hardest phase?Amitabh: Everyday is tough, Ranbir. I’ve met with so many failures. At some point you’ve got to ask yourself what you can do best and what you can go back to. Work small, adjust. Reconcile with that and then it’s just taking steps forward. It’s well known that I had a huge failure in the corporation I began, it bankrupted me, I had no films, no money, I had creditors hounding me, it was a horrid feeling. The very people who applaud you, sing praises about you when you’re doing well, abuse you and become demanding. It’s tough to face that. I decided that I was an actor and went back to it. I went to Yash Chopra asking for a job.Ranbir: And your ego didn’t come in the way of having to ask for a job?Amitabh: I don’t know what ego means. If I don’t have a job, I’ll go and say I don’t have a job. If I need it, I’ll ask for it. That’s how I got Mohabbatein (2000). I didn’t find it embarrassing.Ranbir: Many in your position would have.Amitabh: You have to realise there was no position. I think we are capable enough to understand how we have performed, what was lacking.Ranbir: I remember on the sets of Black, we would be struck by your performance. But you’d go to Bhansali and say, Oh, I clenched my jaw a bit too early. You wanted a retake. You had a desire to get every bit right.advertisementAmitabh: I think it worries you when you see the film. When I see Black now, I hate to see the dining room scene, when I read the letter.Ranbir: When you read that letter, and you get choked. I remember it so clearly because Bhansali showed me that as an example of how you could control your physicality too. As an actor you should be able to do that, he told me.Amitabh: I remember it for the mistake I made. I pull out the letter and reach for my specs and start reading. But if I’ve got Alzheimer’s, how do I know my specs are there? I should’ve thought about it and then reached out. I curse myself. I kept telling Sanjay I wanted to redo it. But Ranbir, you were assisting Sanjay on Black, your main job was to train the little girl perform as a blind girl. If people have appreciated her performance, it’s because you used to train her.Ranbir: A piece of trivia-the only person I’ve been a body-double for is you, in the shot where Debraj is sitting by the fountain. I had to pad myself with overcoats and a skullcap. I’ve had the privilege of being Amitabh Bachchan for a day. It was awesome. If you had to choose one favourite film for all ages, if I pointed a gun at you and asked you to choose, which would it be?Amitabh: I’d tell you to use that gun and shoot it, because I really don’t have that one film. I can’t choose. I feel that I’d belittle the people who’ve made the other 200 films with me. I don’t mind dying for that. I want to ask you, you went to acting school in New York. I want to know how acting is taught. I’ve missed out on it. I didn’t know there were acting schools, until I met Jaya (his wife), who had been to such an institute.Ranbir: To be honest, it’s absolute rubbish. You can’t learn method acting in nine months. What they teach you is how to use sense memory or emotional memory for dramatic scenes. Any intelligent person can do it. My acting lessons came from you on the sets of Black. Bhansali directing you, you responding to his directions. I wouldn’t advise anyone to go to acting school, go to an Amitabh Bachchan set, I’d say. You haven’t done theatre. Would you consider trying it someday?Amitabh: I’ve done amateur stuff that everyone’s done. But I can’t take to the stage now. I’m scared, it’s tough to be on stage. I won’t remember my lines. I admire people who can do it.Ranbir: I’ve seen you memorise a four-page monologue in one hour. Which brings me to my next question. Do you like to stick to the script or improvise?Amitabh: I stick to the script. The writer is the most important person for the film. He’s not just the writer, he’s also the director, set designer, music director-when he writes, he imagines everything. It’s the toughest job to do. It’s disrespectful to say ‘hey, this is rubbish, I’ll just say what I feel like’.Ranbir: And you’ve never thought of directing a film?Amitabh: No, no. I wouldn’t know how to.Ranbir: But to direct is to tell a story, right?Amitabh: Telling it through a lens is tough. How do you know where to put the trolley, where to walk, tell the artist what you want them to do.Ranbir: Can you write a story?Amitabh: I’ve never tried.Ranbir: It happens to me, that I get a story idea, I share it with people, but I just get lazy and can’t get down to writing it. I don’t have the knack. Either you’re born with it or not.Amitabh: If you do have these moments even in the middle of the night, speak them out, record them. Give them to someone else, a friend who’s a writer. You never know, something valuable might come out of it.Ranbir: Do you miss singing and dancing with heroines in Ooty?Amitabh: It’s terrible labour and I hate it. I went along with it because it is a part of my profession. But there were a couple of incidents early in my career, when I was asked to do a song and dance routine, but I didn’t do a very good job and was replaced. So it became a stigma for me. I hate it when I have to do a song and dance sequence. The kind of stuff you guys do now is impossible. How can different parts of your body move in different directions?Ranbir: In Saara zamana? You moved different muscles!Amitabh: I did nothing at all. Just had a guitar and dark glasses, so you don’t see anybody. I was just strumming and doing simple steps.Ranbir: My personal life has been written about a lot. Mostly in a negative way, calling me a cad, a flirt. How do I get out of that?Amitabh: Negativity sells, so it’s going to happen. I deal with negative media even today.Ranbir: You didn’t speak to the media for some time.Amitabh: They felt I was responsible for the media ban during the Emergency. Photographers would put their cameras on the floor as a protest and I was not written about at all.Ranbir: Did it make you unhappy?Amitabh: Well, when they banned me, I said I wouldn’t speak to them either. For almost 15 years, I didn’t speak to them!Ranbir: What’s your relationship like now?Amitabh: Oh, I love them. Dare I say anything else (laughs)?I remember meeting you in London, we were staying at the same hotel. You had a book in your hand and you were going to a park to read. You said ‘I just want to be in my own space. It’s too complicated in Mumbai, I can’t function there.’Ranbir: I was going through a personal shift in my life, I had broken up with a girlfriend. I was taking some time off. That’s why I asked you about loneliness. I really enjoy being alone. It’s the most fun, which is probably not a good thing.Ranbir: Would you ever let anyone make a biopic on you?Amitabh: No. It would be the most boring. Not an autobiography either.Ranbir: Your blog is an autobiography of sorts.Amitabh: That’s an occupational hazard now. Thousands come down my throat if I don’t update it now. But autobiographies, they’re horrid.Ranbir: When will I get an opportunity to work with you?Amitabh: I hope we do, because I hope to get a lesson in acting from you. (The two will soon begin work on Ayan Mukherji’s Brahmastra.) nlast_img read more
